Delivering a sense of wilderness within an urban environment, visitors to Sutton Park can enjoy the captivating scenery, using an accessible network of paths.There are opportunities to enjoy walking, jogging, angling, nature watching, orienteering, play areas, restaurants and use bridle paths and cycling routes in the Park. Car parks are located at all the main entrances and the Park is linked to a variety of public transport routes.Sutton Park is an historic landscape that covers an area of over 2,000 acres and attracts over two million visits every year.In 1997, English Nature designated Sutton Park a National Nature Reserve and it is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).Lying six miles to the north of Birmingham City Centre this landscape is a mosaic of open heathland, woodlands, wetlands, marshes and seven lakes each with their own rich variety of plants and wildlife, some rarely seen in the region. It is an important site for wildlife and conservation, containing fine examples of natural countryside that have survived for hundreds of years. These habitats are part of a working grazed landscape where cattle and wild ponies can be seen grazing during the year.This park is a natural area where animals roam freely. Please wash your hands with soap and water before eating or drinking.

Great space but not well used. Great for running, bike rides. Could do with a few activities for kids, got the space, why not use it??? Free parking, great.

This is a very nice park. Mixture of open fields and shaded areas with bushes and trees. Toilet facilities and ample parking. Plenty of space for everyone. Also good for dog-walkers and cyclists.

This park is fantastic to get away and lose yourself many restaurants around the park plus ice cream half way round. Start in Toby carvery for all you can eat breakfast then walk it off 🙂

Therapeutic & Scenic - from petting the ponies with the kids, to feeding the ducks, playing in the park to riding your mountain bike along the differing terrains. - There is something for everybody!

Sutton Park is a great adventure for young children . Tree climbing, cycling, walking, kite flying . It's a natural park with lakes. A visit to the information centre helps you to get the best out of your visit. You can find out all about the many birds and small animals that inhabit the area. Well recommended
